No worries, your presets and Twitter demos are fantastic! We really appreciated your testing.

For those who missed it, if you don't follow @ignatius on Twitter, I highly recommend it:

I've been spending my breaks at work reading over the manual and watching demos. The wait to get home and finally make some noise is killing me Dead Banana

This is bloody amazing! I haven't been so excited by a plugin for a long time. Congrats, Michael!

Thank you, everyone!!!

Been looking forward to this. Snagged.

I noticed that you made it so that the plugin makes your DAW compensate for the unavoidable delay when you're recording so that you don't have to cut out a bunch of silence. That's an awesome touch. I'm having a blast with this. Congrats on the release dude w00t w00t w00t

I think one of the coolest things is all of the weird windowing functions.

Actually, I'm not even sure if they're the same as the regular "named after two mathematicians" windowing functions but just renamed to give some hint of what they do or whether they're totally experimental. Either way, this is the first time that I've enjoying messing around trying different ones in audio software.

Thanks! Reporting latency is such a bear. That took a lot of QA testing for it to play nice with each DAW.

@poppinger: I appreciate it. I wrote a post on KVR addressing the windowing. They're actually the usual windowing suspects, but we're doing a overlap-add technique that, when combined with the effects, really accentuates the properties of each window. I was also very surprised by it. Here's the post I wrote over there:

Quote:

For a quick list:
Clean = Blackman-Harris (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_fu ... ris_window)
Fault 1.0 = Hamming (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_fu ... ing_window)
Leaky = Welch (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_fu ... lch_window)
Shiny = Bartlett (Triangle) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_fu ... lar_window)
Flutter = Flat-top (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_fu ... top_window)
Glitchy = Rectangle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_fu ... lar_window)
Backwards = Nyquist

Yes, the Flutter/Flat-top window is very sinc-like in shape, so it leads to some additional grain-like sounds. "Glitchy" is ironically the cleanest at neutral settings (since we're doing an overlap-add technique), but it falls apart quickly with the effects. Changing the window doesn't really change much else in the algorithm.

I'll add this to the next manual update. Personally, I chose these names as a way to emphasize that SpecOps is meant to be fun to use. It always seems weird to me that spectral plugins would throw engineering terms at musicians and sound designers. It's not a bad thing, but as a musician who later became an engineer, I remember always being intimidated and overwhelmed by a lot of that. I also wanted to do something like Alchemy for window size. They had settings like "Better time, worse pitch" or something like that. However, we had too many window sizes for similar descriptions.

...

It's pretty crazy how clearly defined each window's signature is with these effects. We tried practically every window on that page along with a few others. At one point, I think the window list was like 15-20 windows. We narrowed it down and eliminated a bunch of windows that sounded very similar.

Wow, looks fantastic, UI is top notch.

Those are awesome! Would you mind if we added them to the Soundcloud playlist on our pages?

Also, I just saw the great patch by Worwell that you posted on KVR:

Of course, repost the tracks!
Yes, muffs was down, so I'm behind here.

Yeah! Some serious bass on this one. I love the gesture around 2:19 with a bunch of grain flutters in a row.

I can still taste that bass the morning after.
Want to listen to it over and over again.

Yeah, it got pretty gnarly. That was Repro 1 through Spec Ops and using one of the Bass presets in the Mixing section. Great job on this plug Michael. You really outdid yourself.

Do you have a link to the 2017 Non-denominational and Demoninational Deity of the Year (DSP Programming Category) poll?
I'd like to cast my ballots as well.

Thanks mt3. That one turned out pretty well. Mescaline (the synth), bit-crushed samples and Spec Ops are a potent combo.

how is SpecOps organised in regards to manually stepping thru the presets by using "the arrows in the preset window on the specOps GUI"?

Seems i have to chose "User presets" or "factory presets" ( edit: from within the "prests window in the GUI ) and it is then stepping thru the whole lot of presets within this two "levels", is this correct ?


i totally missed it in the past that i could step thru my user presets.
it was allways *only* switching thru the "factory presets" list whne randomly clicking these arrows.

if i understand this behave right now correct, this would lead to a feature request:
The option to choose a specific folder so that the "arrow keys in the preset window" would jump exclusively thru presets within that chosen folder.
or could i achive this allready right now ?
